WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., will display its ProHD line of studio and ENG cameras and accessories, as well as its Vérité professional monitors and Blu-ray recorders, at Government Video Expo 2013 (Booth 609), which runs Dec. 4-5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Among its field, studio and public display monitor choices, JVC will highlight its new PS-840UD Professional Series ProVérité 4K 84-inch LCD monitor. It offers native screen resolution of 3840×2160 – four times the resolution of full HD – as well as 60p input and display capability for high-speed content such as sports. Built for rigorous commercial use and housed in a slim bezel with a 178-degree viewing angle, the edge-lit LED illuminated PS-840UD features an IPS LCD panel with 120Hz refresh rate and 10-bit color depth, audio I/O for the built-in 15W speaker, and table base.
“We’re looking forward to showing our affordable 84-inch 4K LCD displays at GV Expo. They are ideal for command and control centers, video production control rooms, even high-end conference rooms,” Dave Walton, assistant vice president of marketing and communications, JVC Professional Products. “With four times the resolution of HD monitors, they are particularly effective for multi-view applications where clarity of the image is mission critical.”
JVC’s GY-HM650 handheld camera can transmit footage to a broadcast facility in real time when equipped with a Verizon 4G LTE modem, which connects directly to the camera via USB, or when used with a Verizon 4G Mobile Hotspot. The camera leverages JVC’s exclusive dual codec design, as well as built-in FTP and Wi-Fi connectivity, to allow live transmission or file transfers in the background as shooters continue to record full HD files to SDHC or SDXC memory cards. The GY-HM650 supports live video streaming of 1080i, 720p, and lower Web-friendly resolutions at various bit rates to adapt to network conditions.
A built-in Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens includes manual focus, servo zoom, and iris rings, plus three ND filters and a removable hood. Audio features include a built-in stereo microphone to capture natural sound on location, two XLR inputs with phantom power, shotgun mic holder, headphone jack, and separate input for a wireless mic receiver. The GY-HM650 records HD or SD footage in multiple file formats, including native XDCAM EX (.MP4), Final Cut Pro (.MOV), and AVCHD, as well as .MXF files that support rich descriptive metadata optimized for asset management.
“The live HD transmission functionality of our GY-HM650 camera is already helping broadcast stations improve their field reporting while saving them money,” Walton added. “There are several government agencies that could benefit from this technology as well.”
For professional duplication and disc authoring, JVC will showcase its SR-HD2500US combo deck. With its built-in Blu-ray recorder and 500 GB hard drive, the unit provides easy Blu-ray and DVD duplication and disc authoring without a PC. It also includes an HD/SD-SDI input, which allows it to connect to most professional production switchers and provide direct recording of a live signal to Blu-ray disc. USB and i.Link (IEEE-1394) ports, SDHC card slot, and composite and S-Video inputs provide compatibility with a wide variety of digital sources and legacy devices.
